Denny’s Proves That Greatness and Antigun Hysteria Do Not Go Hand in Hand

The little girl in this commercial isn’t the only one at Denny’s who fails to comprehend the precious right to bear arms:

Stoked by the Democrat–media complex’s hype, antigun hysteria has flared up in a suburb of St Louis:

The incident began about 10 a.m. Tuesday when five Belleville detectives went into the Denny’s at 1130 South Illinois Street, ordered food and began to eat. The detectives had badges on their belts or on chains around their necks, but they weren’t in uniform.

Belleville Capt. Donald Sax said restaurant manager David Rice then approached and told one of the detectives that a diner had complained about seeing one of the detectives carrying a gun.

Even though the detective told Rice all at the table were police officers, Rice insisted the detectives take their guns back out to their cars, Sax said.

According to Sax, Rice then told the officers that it is company policy to allow only uniformed officers to carry their guns into a restaurant and that a sign on the door stated that policy.

The officers all got up to leave, refusing to pay for their meal. As they were leaving, Sax said a Denny’s general manager, Michael Van, approached the group. He told them Rice was wrong and it was fine for them to stay and to keep their guns.

The detectives, whom Sax described as “embarrassed” by the incident, decided to leave anyway. Sax said the detectives made a point to check the door on their way out.

“There was no sign on the door (regarding firearms),” Sax said. “They all looked for it.”

The official stance of Denny’s is that it was all a mistake. The official stance of the Belleview PD is for cops not to eat there anymore anyway unless they are off duty and out of uniform. The official stance of is to check the door for signs forbidding concealed carry; if you see one, eat somewhere safe instead.

    And if I was the restaurant owner Mr. Rice would be looking for a job somewhere else where his anti-gun hysteria can reach even higher levels of absurdity.

    In some states, those signs have the force of law, at least for the peasants. Not mine; I CC anyway, and if I don’t want them to know, they won’t. Hope I never have occasion to notify them LOUDLY when someone with ill intent also ignores the sign.

    I say fine.
    The moonbats at Denny’s can now go about their business of serving their “preferred” customers
    And making sure the floor is free of potential hazards while the armed zombies advance.

  4. Tax Slave says:

    Betcha that Denney’s gets hit by an armed robber sometime real soon.

    Crazies and criminals with guns are (usually) smart enough to go where ALL THE VICTIMS ARE UNARMED!

  5. Jeanettesca says:

    I haven’t eaten at Denny’s for years and it looks like I won’t be going back any time soon. Idiots.

  6. Stan Back says:

    Dennys is a shithole dump. The only reason they have any business is because nothing else is open at 3AM when drunken derelict dopers leave some rat’s nest meat market bar that is closing.

  7. figmentnewton says:

    >>>a diner had complained about seeing one of the detectives carrying a gun.

    That diner should have got up and gone somewhere else then.

    anybody else sick of the entire world caving over one moonbat’s uncomfortableness or finding offense in something?

  8. Spider says:

    I stopped eating their crap years ago on my many motor trips South. Cracker Barrel is the only way to go!

    As for the hysterical ranting about our guns. Get used to it. The Left will not give up or stop trying.

  9. dan says:

    try being a non LEO concealed carrier when one of the moonbats catch a glimpse …. they used to look at me sideways for just keeping my phone on my belt 🙂
    Maybe I just look dangerous or sumthin’
    Agree with Spidey about Cracker Barrel…wish there was one closer than 70 miles away. Biscuits and gravy…mmmmm

  10. Clingtomyguns says:

    So Dennys hires progressives who think the restaurants are Gun Free Zones, including for police? I am sure the next nutcase who is trying to figure out where to go postal will be glad to know this. As for me and mine, we’ll show our patronage elsewhere, where we’ll CC as we please. I am looking for more businesses to show my patronage that have a sign on the door stating a policy of refusing to serve or hire people who voted for Obama, and those who don’t honor the Second Amendment.

  11. RobM1981 says:

    Denny’s had better do something about this. If that moonbat manager was making the “sign” up, he’d better be terminated – now.

    Ask Chik-fil-A what it’s like when real human beings support you. That’s what Denny’s will get… in reverse.

  12. Dickface Jenkins says:

    They still should’ve paid. Cops aren’t above the law. You can’t steal just because you’re upset over a private business practicing its rights.

  13. M.Wilson says:

    The manager in question wasn’t “practicing his rights”. He was acting against company policy, lying about said policy’s posting, and had damaged both the company’s business and reputation in doing so.

    If I were the guys in charge of Denny’s, that manager’s options would be resign or be fired.

  14. warner says:

    Just for fun… Type in riots – fistfights – dennys into any search engine, The results are scary , Now imagine how worse it will get after this happened. The bad element in this towns knows the police will not be there at all ….

  15. warner says:

    CLINGTOMYGUNS There is a gun range in texas that has a sign on their door that reads ” If you voted for Obama you’re not responsible enough to handle a gun “

  16. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    If I were the guys in charge of Denny’s, that manager’s options would be resign or be fired.

    Today you get fired for interfering with Obama’s “children”

    Hillary Update

    Bill Clinton was asked about Hillary Clinton’s head, to which he replied:

    “Well, she’s no Monica Lewinsky”

    I think those who commented here didn’t watch the video. The commercial was clearly pro-gun. The crazy employee was just a rogue idiot liberal and could have been working anywhere. Not sure why you’re trying to blame Denny’s. Not the best food around but some of the sandwiches are okay in a pinch.

  19. 762x51 says:

    The department policy works for me, I won’t eat there either.

    If Rice lied to a group of customers, in violation of company policy, he needs to be fired. Let’s see Denny’s put their money where their mouth is.

    You can make all the warm and fuzzy commercials you want; question is what do you do when you need to put your pro-gun policy to the test?

    Not even a ripple in my pond.
    Denny’s is where you wind,up, not where you go.
    Naasty coffie and a target rich good guy gun free zone?
